Nice Try

Justin has attempted to put up our lights a number of times this year and something has gone wrong or come up every time. Last Monday night we decided that for FHE we would try to hang them one last time. Well, of course, it snowed that day and was freezing cold. Every time he tried to get on the roof, he would slide right off. So, we are sad to say, there will not be any lights at 624 Eagle Way this year. He did put forth a great effort, though.

While Justin was stressing and getting frustrated over the lights, the kids did manage to have some fun in the snow.

Ellie's Birthday!!

On Saturday, Ellie celebrated her 7th Birthday. She got up early to start the day with opening presents and then we headed to Utah to see the lights at Temple Square.

She was so excited to get a new Vera from Grandma Manwaring. She wore it all day with a big grin on her face.

On Sunday night, we finished off her birthday celebration with cake and ice cream. She came up with the decoration for her cake and put it together herself. She was so proud and it looked so cute and festive.
Happy Birthday, Ellie!!!

Getting the Tree!!!

Last year we went to the mountains to get a Christmas tree for our family and had so much fun, we decided to make it a tradition. So, early Saturday morning, we headed to the mountains in search of another Christmas tree. We didn't have a lot of time to search, but still had a great time. The kids loved riding around in the sled as Justin pulled them over anything in the way. We eventually found a tree that we thought would work. It had nice firm branches and seemed really full. That is, until we got it home and had to cut off a few feet from the bottom to fit it in our house. We didn't realize that was where the fullest part was.
We know it's not the perfect tree, but every time we see it we remember our fun trip.
This is the beginning of the decorating. My hands are so sore and dry today from stringing all of those lights.

Here's the final product! It's a little skinny, but we love it !!

A Little Late!

This birthday post is a little late, but I wanted to wish our brother-in-law, Kevin, a great #29. His birthday was on Saturday and got to spend the day moving into a new place. We're so excited for he and Becky to be living in Idaho Falls now.
Hope you had a great one, Kevin. Happy Birthday!!
